President Reagan gave a lot of incredible speeches, but this may have been his best ever.

Indeed. Nothing stirs my emotions more than the filmstrips from the back of the landing barges and the looks on the guys’ faces as they approach the beaches of France.

Apparently President Narcissus is too much in love with himself to even remember what D-Day was.

Thanks for posting. It took me back to the days when America was the greatest nation ever known on this planet.

America still is the greatest nation on earth, we just allowed the village idiot to sit at the adult table.

We spend $20,000 on each child’s education in the public schools today, some more, some less, granted. How many children can tell you what these words mean on this day?

In contrast to Reagan, an anonymous caller to a radio show today pointed out that Obama hasn't yet put anything up on the White House web site in commemoration of D-Day!!!
